At the command of Their Excellencies, Dafydd and Mahhild of Septentria, herein commences the history of the Canton of Vest Yorvik.
In the beginning, the heavens and the earth were created. After many aeons, the Society was formed, in the year .i. A few years after that, the Dream came to the great Inland Seas, and the lands that would become known as Ealdormere, but were first settled under the leadership of the famous hero Finnvarr de Taahe, under the flag of the Midrealm. This colony was named Septentria, and from this tiny kernel grew the wide and prosperous realm of Ealdormere.
At the time of the founding of the Barony of Septentria, a Canton existed in the western part of that land, called Noerlandia, located to the north of the Royal City of Eoforwic. That Canton, once prosperous and thriving, lost population until it was suddenly dissolved.
